ALA MOANA TRUNK SEWER PROJECT AWARDED
(Monday, July 19, 2010) – Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today that the City has awarded a contract for the Ala Moana Trunk Sewer Rehabilitation project.
"We continue to invest heavily in repairing our sewer collection system and wastewater treatment plants in keeping with our capital improvement priorities," Hannemann said. "The money we collect in sewer fees goes exclusively to these projects. Moreover, the work we do today will ensure that future generations will have an infrastructure that will serve us for decades to come."
The construction contract was conditionally awarded to Insituform Technologies, Inc., which bid $8.3 million. The project is scheduled to begin in October and anticipated to take less than one year.
The 69-inch Ala Moana Trunk Sewer, located along Ala Moana Boulevard between Keawe and Ahui streets, is a critical sewer line that transports raw sewage from Waikiki, Kapahulu, McCully and Kaimuki. Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP), a trenchless method, will be used to rehabilitate 1,400-linear feet. Three manholes will also be rehabilitated.
